Not much info; training exercise operating from the Horizon Class destroyer Caio Duilio at 18:00 local. All six crew survived uninjured.

Ouch! They were very lucky it stayed on the deck and didn't roll into the sea!

I have seen large helicopters in a far worse state than that and they were back on line within six months.

Fareastdriver the ROnAF AW101 that ended up on it's side is back in service, but it took a year. Regardless, I'm sure it can be rebuilt.

Seen worse described as a heavy landing. I'm sure it will buff out.

it will be written off. The Norway 101 rebuild is a significant figure and composite structures arenít as simple as the days of Sea King. No disrespect meant .

It's done.
That class is better supported by a pair of NH-90s anyway.

It would be interesting to know what experience levels the pilots have. Some of those guys and girls fly very few hours per year.
